I've recently been testing the latest versions of these: HERE WeGo map site
HERE WeGo Navigation app (Android) HERE WeGo Navigation app (iOS)
All of my tests were done on Android mobile OS.
iOS version should be very similar, but YMMV.
As the recent testing (discussed in this thread
) has determined, every mapping/navigation "solution" is lacking in a few (or several) key aspects, relative to the needs of what I call "High Frequency Travelers" (e.g.: Truckers, RVers & Fly&Drivers, most of whom have to keep on a schedule).
This includes some significant limitations of the newest versions of CoPilot Live 9.x and the TomTom mobile app
So I decided to take another look at HEREWeGo (formerly "Here"), to see if how well it could be utilized. Key features of HEREWeGo [compared to GoogleMaps]
1. Permanent local ('offline') storage of entire continents in state-by-state maps [limited number of user-selected area maps make national coverage unfeasible, maps expire if not updated every 30 days.]
2. "Starred" (favorite) places are saved into user-nameable "Collections" but neither "Starred" places within the "Collections" nor the group of "Collections" can be sorted. [one non-sortable list of "Starred" places]
2a. Here's "Starred" (favorite) places are ONLY accessible from within the appropriate "Collection" - there is no 'master list' nor a way to search for "Starred" places, so to find a "Starred" (favorite) place you would have to know which collection it's in. This would quickly become another major drawback if trying to manage a large number of places & collections. [one non-searchable list of "Starred" (saved) places, and one list of "labeled" places. However, there are several useful management functions on the (poorly named) Bookmarks www.google.com/bookmarkspage. More info here]
3. "Starred" places saved on on HEREWeGo map site
automatically sync (via internet) with the HereWeGo mobile app signed into the same account, after which they are accessible in the mobile app without an internet connection [works the same way]
4. Multi-stop routes can be created on HEREWeGo map site
and saved as a named collection [multi-stop routes can be created on the Google Maps site, but cannot be saved as named routes]
4a. Multi-stop routes created on HEREWeGo map site
cannot be sent via email or text message [multi-stop routes can be created on the Google Maps site and sent via email or text message]
5. The HEREWeGo mobile app cannot create or navigate a multi-stop route [multi-stop routes can be created & navigated in the GoogleMaps app]
6. Existing routes saved from the HEREWeGo map site
do not show up in the HereWeGo mobile app and new routes cannot be saved there from the mobile app. [multi-stop routes received via email or text message by the GoogleMaps app can be "saved" locally to the homescreen but user has no control over the name (always named @ the destination)]
